Ep. 76 Has Obamacare Really Saved Lives? Plus: Now Krugman Knows How Libertarians Feel All the Time
Contra Krugman with Bob Murphy and Tom Woods
We’ve covered Obamacare quite a bit on this podcast, but we had to address Krugman’s claim — advanced by many on the left — that Obamacare has surely saved lives, and its repeal would undoubtedly involve the loss of life. Then we look at Krugman’s worry about the prospect of a media in the regime’s pocket, and private individuals and companies feeling pressured to toe the regime’s line. Yeah, we’ve never seen anything like that before!
